Does the madrasah get the feedback that a student submits?
The feedback button is to capture any technical issues the student/teacher is experiencing and any content-related issues (typos/grammar/wrong reference etc.) If any feedback is deemed as worthy of the teacher being informed, we will forward it on. However, at present, all feedback comes directly to the MCE team.
Does the digital platform work on mobile phones?
The digital platform only works on tablets, laptops and desktop computers. Mobile phones are not compatible due to the small screen size.
What happens if a student shares their login ID?
